What is the Livestock Auction?
The auction is a result of a project taken on by local 4H and FFA members. Is is the culmination of an excellent learning experience for our youth which includes: animal selection and purchase, raising the animal, feed, animal maintenance, record keeping, grooming, and finally showing.
All animals have been judged and graded during the species shows leading up to the day of the sale. Your generous support recognizes the members’ efforts and will help ensure the success and continuation of their project.
How do I Bid?
Interested buyers register at the “Buyer Registration” table to obtain a buyer number and auction book. The auction book lists the animals to grade and placing for the sale order. All livestock and turkeys are sold by the head. This includes steers, pigs, goats and lambs. The meat chickens and rabbits are sold by the lot. The lot consists of three animals. .
When you purchase an animal a runner will bring you a sales slip for your signature. At that time you will select disposition. (Butcher or live pick up) All purchases will be paid at the end of the auction. Payments may be made with cash, check, or credit card. (There is a 3% transaction fee for credit cards.)
Add~ons are also encouraged. An add~on is a specific dollar amount donated to an exhibitor. Simplify fill out the add~on slip and return it with your payment to the buyer table at any time during the sale.
If you need help bidding just ask auction staff!
